A new visualization of global groundwater depletion, created using data from NASA's GRACE mission, has premiered on New York's Times Square to mark World Water Day 2012.

To highlight declines in Earth’s groundwater, a visualization of world groundwater reserves will run several times each hour through April 22 on the big screen in New York’s Times Square.

The animation, created in part with space data from the joint NASA/German Aerospace Center (DLR) Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission, debuted on New York's Times Square on March 22, International World Water Day. The 30-second animation, titled "Visualizing Seasonal and Long-term Changes in Groundwater Levels," will be on display several times each hour through April 22 on Times Square's massive Thomson Reuters and NASDAQ digital signboards. Viewers of the interactive animation are invited to use their mobile devices to submit their city and add a graph to the sign.
